Default Botteling question

Wife like some store bought beer that has a screw off cap.

Are these good bottles for recapping or am i looking at chances of problems?

Thanks

I have heard that no, they aren't so good. The glass is weaker on the threads and can't hold the cap. Also, IME Stella bottles don't cap so easy either.
Hope it works out,
Sarah.

Even with a bench capper,twist offs can be hit & miss. I toss'em.
